Luke & Craig
Summergrove Estate, NSW
LOVE IS LOVE
The day that Australia passed legislation to legalise same-sex marriage was one hell of a celebration! As professionals in the wedding industry, it was heart-breaking to experience same-sex couples have a “commitment ceremony” rather than a legal marriage. So, on the 15th November 2017, we all raised our glasses and toasted a big HELL YES to marriage equality in Australia.
As wedding stylists, we embraced this fabulous news and rallied together with a bunch of awesome wedding professionals to create history in Australia. The first same-sex wedding took place on Tuesday 9th January 2018.
Craig and Luke were the gorgeous Grooms involved in this epic wedding event. You could not have found a more lovely, genuine, down-to-earth and “in love” couple. Within minutes of meeting them our hearts filled with joy. These two deserved to be together forever in marriage.
Tanja from TM Event Planning worked closely with celebrant Sarah-May Alexander and the fab team from Summergrove Estate at Carool in Northern NSW to create magic. They invited a team of wedding peeps that they knew could pull off a unique and momentous event – and that they did.

Craig and Luke shared this occasion with their closest friends and family….and the rest of the world as this wedding turned into a media frenzy with coverage of this first official same-sex wedding in Australia reaching far and wide around Australia and the world.
Congratulations Mr & Mr Burns, we loved being part of your incredible wedding day!
